Art Meets Vienna – A project that aims to unify artists worldwide

Art Meets ViennaArt Meets Vienna is a project that unifies artists of all nations and it’s goal is to hold an exhibition with artworks from artists all over the world in Vienna. The well observed art project “Art Meets Vienna”, founded by the Viennese artist Monika Mori on Facebook on March 15th 2010 will soon reach it’s goal: an exhibition in Vienna.

The first meeting of the participants took place on June 28th: Artists from Austria as well as from abroad attended. The ones who could not be there in person tried to follow it via Skype. This constructive meeting of dedicated artists showed the unique team spirit of people who just recently met on the internet platform Facebook. Each and everyone of them are working voluntarily for this unifying art project. The allocation of tasks were discussed.

“We want art to be at the centre of attention and not any slogans which would only irritate us or the public and lead to misinterpretations.” says Mori.

She is very touched by the merging of the group and the friendships that come into existence. Art meets Vienna wants to unify different nations and cultures – just like the Olympic Games. Each artist represents a different cultural, historical and social background and they all inspire one another. The huge spectrum of artistic styles and how they add harmony towards each other.

Several videos on YouTube that show samples of the artwork and were watched by thousands of fans all over the world. More than 50 artist profiles were collected and translated into German and English. People from Argentina, Bulgaria, Brazil, Germany, France, Greece, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Libya, Netherlands, Austria, Sweden, Switzerland, Serbia, Slowenia, Spain, Hungary and U.S.A. will present their artwork in Vienna.

“The search for a suitable accommodation for the exhibition is still in progress. We hope for some assistance from the cultural office of the Viennese government as we try to raise the international awareness for the cultural capital Vienna,” says Monika Mori, “We now will contact the embassies of the participating countries and ask them for their support. As soon as we have a location, the artworks can start their journey to Vienna.”
